“Great location for park/stay/fly.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I've enjoyed this property a number of times over the past few years as a great park/stay/fly location. While not the closest hotel to Logan airport, the package rates are reasonable when you add everything up that might cost you separately. Room was well appointed with king bed, clean crisp sheets, and the higher floors may have a good view of Boston skyline, depending on which side of building you're on. Bathroom was spotless clean with attractive granite counters. Courtyard and adjacent hotel have shuttle service to Logan 24/7. Coffee bar is complimentary and breakfast available for a fee.

Room Tip: Higher floors facing north have good skyline view of Boston.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Our stay here during our college visit was what we have come to expect from Marriott -- Comfortable beds, clean rooms, good service, quiet hotel, reliable internet. Only complaint was a very sqeaky bathroom door, but when I mentioned this at checkout, the person at the desk said they would notify the maintenance staff. Hotel is nicely situated away from the downtown craziness but near a T station and has free parking. We'd stay here again without question.

We wanted a nice hotel near the Amtrak South station and our agent recommended this one. We're glad she did. Very nice large room - our's had a good view of the city. Easy walk to Applebees, Olice Garden, Panerra, etc. Shuttle and in -house bar. Recommend it if you are looking for a nice place to stay at a reasonable price.

The hotel is located 0.6 miles from the nearest T station (Andrew Station, on the Red Line, 3 stations away from South Station, an interchange to change to other lines), which is around a 5 - 10 minutes walk. It's kind of hidden in the residential area, and next to Holiday Inn. While the location is not right in the city centre like Copley Square, the T brought us everywhere in a short time, so distance is definitely not an issue. The room was spacious, clean and nice, as with most Marriott properties, and the customer service was good. Quite a decent hotel if you want a reasonably-priced hotel in Boston.

Loved my stay! Had free wifi and a mini fridge in the room. Would have loved a microwave though to make my daughter some cereal for the two days I stayed there. Had a leak in the bathroom vent from the upstairs bathroom due to another guest taking a shower. Thank God nobody slipped and fell in the middle of the night. The breakfast was good. Not free but the quality is worth the price. The staff seemed friendly. Hardly communicated though, only looked at me without any acknowledgement when I went downstairs. Close to a marketplace that has a bestbuy, olive garden, Applebee's, old navy, Marshall's, tj maxx, target, home depot, and a few others. Pool and hot tub were also nice. Not far from the zoo either. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Spent 2 days here touring Boston before driving to Maine. We chose this hotel because it was more reasonably priced than those in the heart of Boston, it had free parking, was close to the Andrew red-line T station and had coffee and a frig in the room. We always use the subway, when available, so distance from the city is not an issue with us. Read most of the previous reviews beforehand so we knew some folks had concerns about the "seedy" area on the walk to the T so I went to Google maps street-view and "walked" it to the station to "see" with my own eyes. Looked like a tired and run-down part of the city but nothing that made me apprehensive. When we got there I found my impressions to be accurate. Someone had posted that it's better to use 8 Allstate Dr. as the address on your GPS which we did as soon as we picked up the rental car at Logan. Found the hotel easily. All the dining options at the shopping center next to the hotel were a plus. It was all the typical chain restaurants and fast-food but fine for us as we were there to sight-see not play food critic. Hotel staff was great, especially Kayla. Spent a little time talking to her at check-in to confirm my "google-walk" directions to the subway and she gave us a free breakfast when I asked nicely. :) For our second breakfast we picked up muffins at the Dunkin Donuts next to the Andrews T station on our walk back to the hotel after our first day in Boston. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. We were very happy with our hotel choice and would stay here again. We loved Boston, it's easy to get around with the T and the people are very friendly and helpful. At the Andrews station we were reading the instructions on the T card machine when a Bostonian came up and gave us a spare Charlie card that he had and then showed us how to add $ to it - what a nice guy! In a couple of minutes we were on our way downtown. Enjoyed doing the whole "tourist-trolley-with-harbor-cruise" thing, walked the Freedom Trail, toured the USS Constitution and then took the water taxi back to the Aquarium Station T stop at Long Wharf. From there it was an easy ride home on the subway. What a great city! Will certainly return and will stay again at the Courtyard South Boston.

To my dismay the first impression on this hotel is a let down, simply because the receptionist, that attend our check in simply won't smile at all and gave us the worst rooms in the hotel: - first room next to elevator and the second room next to vending machine. Because of the noise, I was unable to sleep confortable for two nights. I asked her if she has other rooms available and she starts to giving me her personal opinion about the room and location. She was very rude and sarcastic.
I hate having my positive feeling about your hotel ruined by one visit poor reaction from the receptionist and rude.
